Want to buy and sell property but worried about the rules on paperwork?
Good. You should be.
Even experienced investors, with paperwork and systems in places, have a good reason to re-examine your processes and paperwork.
A lot has changed in real estate law recently, locally and nationally, that you need to know so you’re not caught on the wrong side of a check.
Undisclosed defects of bank repos, foreclosures, and tax sales of Indiana real estate transactions are prevalent problem in today’s real estate market. How investors can protect against undisclosed defects when buying investment property is, and should be, a big concern.
Now more than ever active investors, whether buying, selling, renting, flipping, wholesaling, or lease-optioning, need to be aware of:
» Undisclosed Defects
» Intentional Misrepresentation
» Negligent Misrepresentation
» Innocent Misrepresentation
» New Disclosure Obligations
REIA president Scott FladHammer describes the importance of paperwork and process, “All good businesses try to stay up to date with compliance; but carving out the time is another thing. We had used the same forms and processes for our retail real estate company for two decades so I knew there were things that needed updating.
But it wasn’t until I attended the Fort Wayne REIA meeting that I was called out on our current processes and paperwork for flipping houses that I decided it was now important to make the time.
During an REIA Q&A session it was brought up that the powers that be are taking a strong stance against several of the old-school real estate forms. Doug was very knowledgeable on the topic and patient in explaining (coaxing) that all investors get up to speed or face some serious consequences.
This is an example of how even senior investors need continuing education from a supportive community. As a former slave-to-the-grind turned financially free and time-free business owner I can attest to the fact that only at REIA do I get this kind of community care, resources and training. Meetups are for hobbies; associations are professionals.”
